Just a social ride, not a race. I have not done much riding the last 6 months so going up the hills wont be quick, but going down should be fun. Not really for beginners, but if you starting out and want to get lights (good lights) and have a go then send me a PM to discuss. Gets pretty cold this time of year so make sure your rugged up to begin with and then be able to shred off some gear once you hit a hill or two.

Thanks to all those that helped a fallen comrade at the Oaks today

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Just a shout out to all those that helped out our mate, Tristan today at the Oaks.

Rob S and a few others helped out with first aid and equipment after Tristan fishtailed out and faceplanted into the rut at the sharp left juncture about 3 clicks from the Woodford entry.
He was out cold, copped a broken cheekbone and concussed and was airlifted out.

Again just a huge show of thanks for the mtb comraderie and Tristan is doing well and sends his thanks for those that helped!

Andersons. Oaks. Someone pikes, someone chokes.

Could not believe it. "Ando" Andy, the guy who lives less than 5 minutes from the meeting point, bailing out before his dainty foot even touched his bedroom floor. Drizzling, he called it. A bit icky. And to think that some of those Sydney blokes got up at 5am for this one.

But it's early, he says. It's raining. And I've never liked that ride anyway.

Bloody cream-puff.

Turns out he wasn't the only one.

Sticky Front Wheel

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Found a good picture of me from the Marathon-Photos site. At about 5kms from the finish, I overtook someone and collected a large stick in the front wheel. Lots of crunching noises and bits of stick flying through the air, and somehow, I smashed it to pieces and kept on going. Got to the finish and found a large section of stick still threaded though the spokes - you can see it in the photo. And when I think of what could have happened...
